Happy National Spouses Day!

No, I didn’t make it up.  It really is a thing.  Check it out…

According to National Day Calendar:

“National Spouses Day is observed annually on January 26th.

Dedicated to recognizing spouses everywhere, the day reminds us to take time for our mate. From being thankful for fulfillment and security of a long-term relationship to the boost of morale and well-being provided by spouses, there are many reasons to celebrate.

This day is a time to show your spouse that you care and appreciate all of the things that he or she does for you and the home.

Life gets busy, and we can often take for granted how our spouse improves our life.  Pay a heartfelt thank you or compliment to the love of your life.

National Spouses Day is a non-gift giving day, so spend time together and reconnect. Don’t forget to say, “I love you.”

Use #NationalSpousesDay to post to social media.

Today is a perfect day to show your spouse how much you love and appreciate him/her.

It’s not the big things that make a marriage wonderful. It’s all the small, beautiful moments you share that strengthen a marriage.

Take some time today to show your love and appreciation, and watch your relationship blossom.

With love and gratitude,

P.S. Let us know in the comments below how you show your spouse how you appreciate him/her!

I came across this poem, Be Grateful by an unknown author, when I was writing my book, Gratitude and Goals in 2006. It’s hard to believe that something which so beautifully defines the essence of gratitude goes unclaimed.

When I read it I can’t help but connect fully with what the author was trying to teach us.  Be grateful…for everything.  Whether you think something is good or bad, it all has meaning.  If you aim to live your life finding the reason(s) to be grateful in everything, you will literally begin to live a life of bliss.  All negativity will drift away.  Your relationships will bloom. Your dreams will begin to manifest. You will be happy.

It’s official! The people at National Day Calendar accepted my application.  The month of November – this and every year – is now officially declared  “National Gratitude Month” throughout the USA and Canada.

In celebration of National Gratitude Month I decided to host a “30 Day Global Gratitude Challenge”, starting November 1, 2015. It’s free to participate.  When you enroll, you will receive a new message every day straight to your email inbox giving you opportunity to practice gratitude in new and interesting ways.
